A Texas Tech student is now in custody for fatally shooting a campus police officer on Monday evening.

According to reports, the suspect, Hollis Daniels, 18, had been brought into the police station following a welfare check. The police reportedly also found “evidence of drugs and drug paraphernaliaā€¯ in his room.

While at the station, Daniels suddenly shot the officer in the head before fleeing the scene.

The university was placed on a campus-wide lock down until Daniels was apprehended and those in the vicinity were asked to take shelter.

The name of the officer that was killed has not yet been released — as the police are still likely notifying their next of kin.
